Sparkly Pink Stars and Christmas Jumpers

A Vintage Nerd

'Tis the season for the pink and sparkly? It may not be the most traditional route but anything that is pink and sparkly is good in my book. 

Today I bring you two of my favorite things from this season so far; British Christmas Jumpers and Crown and Glory Hair Accessories. Both are Made in the UK and both are extraordinary businesses. I can tell you this right off the bat that my Christmas jumper (aka sweater) came in just two days! I have never experienced such fast shipping from the UK ever. It was amazing, truly. I can also tell you that every single one of my packages from Crown and Glory comes beautifully wrapped and everything placed with great care. 

I joined the Crown and Glory's The Glitterati monthly club and honestly it is the best treat I have given myself in a long, long time. The owners are lovely , communicate well, and lets not forget the box of goodies that I get. One of those very sparkly beauties is called the Megan Glitter Star Halo Headband. Once I saw it and put it on I instantly felt like Hedy Lamarr's character, Sandra from Ziegfeld Girl

I was very impressed with my British Christmas Jumper because it was incredibly well made and so darn warm. Can you ask for more from a jumper? I had two sweater designs that I just loved, one with an image of New York in winter and one of London. Eventually my daughter helped me decide and when she saw the pink one the verdict was finalized.

I paired up my sparkly pink stars and my Christmas jumper with my Christmas tree and my daughter became my little photographer for the day.  My daughter asked me to tell my friends that she took the pictures and I always keep my promises.

I couldn't wait to share with you two of my favorite things from this holiday season so far and here they are:
